Axcis have been working with a large secondary SEND school just outside Devizes who regularly request teaching assistants from us for ad-hoc and sometimes longer roles. The school specialises in support for pupils with communication and interaction difficulties. The majority of the students are high functioning and some have sensory impairments, physical disabilities, medical needs and autism. All students at the school have an EHCP plan. You will either be working 1-1 with a specific child or you will be general in class support.
The main school house is a beautiful Grade 11 listed Georgian house set in twenty acres of parkland. This is a very popular school with our members of staff who all ask to go back. The school is rated 'Good' by Ofsted and the permanent staff there are supportive and welcoming. The school have taken on some of our staff permanently in the past and the potential is there if the school like you. The school has ample parking and for those who don't drive there is a regular bus links from Devizes.
The school has a very friendly atmosphere and a supportive environment, and is well liked by all staff we have sent to them in the past.

You will be representing Axcis as a company and we want to hear from people who ae able to use their initiative and those who have good levels of spoken English. Pay rates are really good between £70-£75 for the day and the school hours are 8:30-3pm with a half an hour lunch break.

Please note: The details of this job are correct as of the start of the school closures.

We are therefore continuing to accept applications but please bear with us as there may be a delay on the listed start date due to the fact that the situation is continually evolving.
